We have been shooting a bunch with the Contour HD POV cameras this season. Mostly for snowboarding. Eero Niemela decided to test it out on the paint ball corse during the Grenade Games. It still works! Nice Job Eero.
Last week we got a few days in the sun. The wind was blowing pretty hard and really messed up the snow pack. We had look hard for the good pocket of snow. In the end we got a few clips for movie and as always had a good time.

Get inside a small part of the small time it took Jordan Mendenhall to film his part in Videograss last year. Jordan tore his ACL at the beginning of the season last year and was only able to film a few days up at High Cascade Snowboard Camp last summer with Videograss filmer Justin Meyer. Jordan is riding the K2 Slayblade Snowboard, the K2 Jibpan Snowboard, Formula Bindings, and T1 Boots.
